SI.COM'S TWITTER 100

This is an article from the Sept. 24, 2012 issue

Arian Foster

@ArianFoster

Paper tastes funny, and not many donkeys have high self esteem. RT @hoobsher: @ArianFoster why aren't you a money hungry, self obsessed ass?

Floyd Mayweather

@FloydMayweather

I bet $250,000 on the Atlanta Falcons [last week]. Looks like easy money...

Lolo Jones

@lolojones

Ask Tebow if he wants a glass of milk. If he says yes, ask him if he prefers chocolate. If he says no, then no more Tebow date suggestions

Kevin Durant

@KDTrey5

I do some of the dumbest stuff, just not thinking...smh...live and learn though

Jose Canseco

@JoseCanseco

U haters forget I was once the best player in the world without a doubt. No argument

Mark Cuban

@mcuban

If you are POTUS when a "Next big thing hits," you are a genius. If you are POTUS when a bubble bursts you are an idiot. Both are wrong

Metta WorldPeace

@MettaWorldPeace

I'm inviting all races, people n' genders to my comedy show. I'll stereotype everyone uncensored. I hope ya'll laugh and enjoy! Laugh factory

TAILGATING SHOWDOWN

There are many ways to approach an NFL tailgate. You can bring a couple of deck chairs, a six-pack and some chips, and call it a morning. Or you can get medieval with a pig and a spit. Call it rotisserie football. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED wants to know which team's fans are the best tailgaters, so we're asking fans in every NFL city to make the case for their collective tailgate. Send your photos, videos and stories to give us a flavor of what goes down—and up in flames—in your Sunday morning lots and villages. On Oct. 1 we'll launch a 32-city tailgate bracket. The winners advance to the round of 16, to eight, right down to the finals of Tailgating Kings 2012. Go to SI.com/grillseekers to submit your favorite tale-gate.
